7  Steps to Pool Heaven With AquaGuard

Step 1 Pool Preparation

We prepare the pool by acid and power washing the surface to remove contaminants. We then fill in all cracks and voids and cut seal lines around all fittings and accessories.

Step 2: AquaGuard Plus 5001 Primer

After preparing the surface, the AquaGuard 5001 is applied. AquaGuard 5001 is a unique product developed by Aquatic Technologies Group, LLC to create the strongest cohesive bond possible.  AquaGuard 5001 is specifically designed to penetrate the tiny pores in the surface that is being treated. This enhances cohesion of the AquaGuard 5001 coating to the pool, providing an ultra tight barrier to any aquatic surface.
